How To Charge iPad When Plugged Into PC

As I am sure you are aware, most computer USB ports do not provide the required 2.1 amps that the iPad needs to charge.  Standard USB ports only supply 1.0 amp, which is fine for iPhones and iPods, but insufficient for the iPad.  Fortunately, some motherboard manufacturers have released a utility that will allow charging directly from onboard USB ports.

Asus has released the Ai Charger utility, which is available here:

Next, MSI has also released a utility, which can be downloaded here:

UPDATE: One of our readers suggested that Gigabyte has also released a utility. Download it here:

  • Artifacts on screen.
  • Partially inverted colors on screen.
  • Blank areas of screen.

The first and foremost troubleshooting step is to reset the iPad.  Find the steps here.

If that does not work, make sure the screen is not set to invert colors.  This is an accessibility option that can be found in Settings-General-White on Black.

If that does not work, please return to the Apple store for repair, as it is most likely a irreparable hardware problem that requires replacement.  Many users are having good experience with this, as Apple will most likely replace the iPad on the spot.
